    Cell Rot


    https://sharprazorpalace.com/worksho...ml#post1496143


    I have already lost a lovely razor because cell rot. Back then I wasnít aware of the disease at all and the diagnosis was made in this forum.

    The following is a razor that I just received from an auction. It is a well preserved vintage razor that I liked a lot. Especially the scales.
    As soon as I opened the box I saw some signs of rust. I can deal with it and it doesnít bother me. However, I remember that the razor I lost from cell rot in the past began as a rust. I didnít bother back then, but after 6 months the razor was dead.

    Fact is I really like these scales and I certainly donít want to change them just in case this is indeed cell rot. So, I wonder if there is anyone here that can be certain that this is, or this is not cell rot.

    Thank you very much.

    What are you working on?

    It’s all hand push. I am not deep enough into it to cough up the dough for power. Truly I need to spend way more time on layout and design before

    “ I use gravers for most of my stuff.”

    Shaun, are you using power gravers or hand push? Can you hand push bone and horn easily enough?

    I know just about enough about scroll saws to get me into trouble. I have had mine for 10 years and it was used when I bought it. a old Delta 40-150.
